Small Scale Technology Certificates (STCs)
Small scale renewable energy scheme by the Australian government allows eligible small scale solar PV power system such as households, small businesses and community groups to be entitled to a number of small scale technology certificates.
Based on the installation date, geographical location and the amount of electricity generated by your rooftop solar in megawatt hours (MWh), a number of certificates can be generated. Generally, one certificate is equal to one megawatt hour of electricity generated by your solar PV power system.
Once these certificates are created and validated, they act as a form of currency and can be sold to retrieve a portion of the cost of purchasing and installing the solar PV system.
